    I forgot to mention that the going rate in my area is $10.00 for the 1st card and $5.00 for every other card. I had no issues with the fee, I just wanted it done.

    • My local police department was $12 and $6.

        I tested on August 16th, but didn't receive my letter for my oral board until after I received my fingerprint cards. Also there were people on here who tested after me, who received theirs before me. So honestly I wouldn't worry yet if I was you. My CASS hasn't updated yet either.

        If the final offer for DOD police comes, take it. Border Patrol might not work out for you, so it would be better to have something to fall back on.

        • If I were you I'd take DOD and after you get the call from BPA you move over. All of us that tested in August won't see anything until at least January. Just take it and continue with this process.

          • I'd suggest you do what the others have mentioned; take the offer! Just today, I received an early promotion and pay raise from my current employer. I haven't mentioned how far along I'm in the BPA process, but I'm sure I will have to make them aware soon enough. Although my dream would be to work as a PA, I'm going on with my job as normal. All your eggs shouldn't be in one basket.

            No word yet on my fingerprint cards, either. Did receive my OB date of 10/13. I also tested on Aug. 18th in Ontario.

              Whatever they have to offer in regards to the entire SW or just the state I applied?

              • Whatever station they offer is what you choose and that goes for the entire SW border.

                  If you look on the other forums, you will notice that some people applied for California, and were offered West Texas or Arizona. Honestly, you should prepare to get an offer nowhere near where you applied. With this agency, there are no guarantees that you will get San Diego, or Tucson, but instead could end up in Presidio or Deming regardless of where you applied.

                  I know this is not the answer you want to hear.

                  • More choices to choose from I suppose. Thanks for the info. Is there any good web sites that would have good info for my wife to check out on the living conditions in different sectors and sub stations? I dont think something like Tucson would be a problem, but the tiny middle of nowhere sub stations might be an issue with my wife, lol.
